  • Like birthmarks?
    My grandma said she was scared by a mouse while pregnant with my mom and that's why my mom has a birthmark on her butt

  • my daughter has a mongolian birthmark on her upper butt in the center the size of a store baught frozen pancake. it also is bright blue and kinda looks like a bruise so when dfs saw her for the first time because of a b.s. call of abuse with cig burns all over (which i nor my husband smoke). I had to have her contact my daughters pediatrician to verify it has been there since birth and it IS a birth mark not a bruise. but i never did anything out of the ordinary :D

  • Lol I don't think there's any truth in them.. But my ex sister in law told me once that one of here aunts had a birth mark on the side of her face because while her mother was pregnant someone hit her..

  • On Everybody Loves Raymond, Marie said that if a pregnant woman craves a food and doesn't get it, the child will end up with a birthmark in the shape of that food. LOL

  • I read that so wrong, and that is said "old wives tales about making a baby", I was going to say "if the woman is on top she can't get pregnant". I have never heard any old wives tales about birthmarks.
